This month’s feature focuses on the Manning Elementary School.
The Manning is tucked into a hidden corner of Jamaica Plain near the Faulkner Hospital, serving only 158 students this year. With one classroom for each grade level, K1-5, the Manning has a richly deserved reputation for its full inclusion of students with significant emotional or behavioral impairments.
Visit the “We’re Learning Here” archive on our website to see some other schools up close and personal through the eyes of Amika Kemmler-Ernst, a recently retired BPS New Teacher Developer with extensive experience as a classroom teacher, curriculum developer, and graphic artist. The “We’re Learning Here” series features a slideshow of images of everyday learning in our public schools, along with the words of the students in the photographs.
